Pasta Fagioli Soup
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
As an Italian, I must object to the blandness of this recipe. I am fine if you want to call it soup, but please, you can't use the Italian staple name of Pasta e Fagioli. Just call it turkey pasta and beans, or something long those lines.
I sauteed the chopped medium onion
I used diced tomatoes with seasonings, made my broth with bouillon and seasoned with Italian seasonings. Tasted really good when improvised. Claudia
I had to make this soup for a project in my cooking class. In my opinion, it wasn´t very good. We had to add more noodles and tomato sauce to make it taste better. I also did not like the large chunks of tomato in the soup.
The soup was kind of bland the only thing that gave it a lot of flavors was the sausage and personally I added too many noodles
I liked this recipe. However, I would make the recipe have more liquid and add more pasta.
I made this for a project in my class, it was good. the spinach kinda took the taste away from the meal so next time we'll add shredded cheese. overall it was delicious.

I don't feel I can rate the recipe as I made so many changes with ingredients on hand and just used this as a base recipe. As long as the ingredient portions are the same, recipes tend to be fine. I doubled the recipe (we love soup) so I could freeze some. I used a can of cannellini beans and a can of garbanzo beans. I had a 15 ounce can of fire roasted dice tomatoes and one of Italian seasoned stewed tomatoes that I also used. In addition, I used 1 1/2 cups of ditalini pasta and a half bag of leftover baby spinach. I also threw in some Italian seasoning and the soup was delicious (5 stars here). The original recipe above did not not seem to have much seasoning it but what I made seemed perfect for us.
I doubled the recipe based on other reviews. I didn't have a problem with it not having enough liquid. It was good, but bland for us as written. I added some Italian seasoning and used hot sausage, but it still needed more oomph.
